in midair. like the patriot missile system as a lot of us were familiar with in u.s. wars over the past couple decades. but this is designed for short range rockets and missiles, if you will. and israelis say so far, it is about 90% success rate. they have been using it pretty successfully. problem is, it's been about a thousand rockets and missiles that have come into israel from gaza since last when this crisis really jessica late. sirens go off in towns and villages and the people have to rush to air raid shelters or bunkers, stair wells, wherever they can go. israelis say they won't tolerate it very much longer. that's the israeli perspective. they are going after targets in gaza, but there are plenty of civilians w40 have been killed in the process in gaza because it is such a heavily populated area and some of the missiled are launched from populated areas. then you get the tragic results in the process. >> and we have seen the video of the people fleeing and when they see the sirens running off, just trying anything they can do, wolf, to get to safety. everyone wants this not to
: in fact, the "dallas" franchise was so successful, the series was recently reprised. the u.s. network tnt brought it back with a new generation of ewings and hagman came back, too, returning as j.r. once again. critics say he was the best thing about "dallas." but explaining the character's appeal, hagman once said the time is right for a real bad guy and i'm it. >> have a good day, master. >> i'm going to have a wonderful day. >> reporter: it was a good guy who larry hagman blasted into people's living rooms playing astronaut tony nelson on "i dream of jeannie." the show was a hit in the 1960s and is still popular in syndication. even as a kid, hagman orbited in showbiz as the son of peter pan star mary martin, his movie roles included "up the cellar." >> i'm moving up now. >> reporter: it was only after mill amming a huge contract from the producers of "dallas" that hagman became immensely wealthy. he had houses, cars, vices, two of them included drinking and smoking. he smoked for 24 years, gave it up and became an anti-smoking activist and smokesman for the american cancer society. >>
for themselves. but isn't there a danger in having a political appointee like a u.s. ambassador, in a sense, freelancing, when critical material is concerned. >> i don't think so, i think ambassador rice could have easily said we may have had an organized terrorist group that may have had affiliated with al-qaeda behind the attack in benghazi. i don't think it would have been compromising any sensitive information. i think the administration has used that as an excuse, and it really -- you know, america has a lot of overclassifying, that is one reason there are adults that are supposed to be able to handle this. and i don't think it would have been that difficult for her to somewhat give a more nuance discussion of what really transpired in benghazi. >> fran, you dealt with classified and unclassified talking points when you served at the white house, do you agree with rueul? >> well, those that drafted these talking points, perhaps the intelligence community will prepare the individual going out on the sunday show, especially if they're doing multiple shows, to understand where the lines h
that brought down the head of the cia, general david petraeus. another u.s. general is caught in the same tangled web. john allen, top commander in afghanistan, is being investigated by the pentagon for allegedly sending inappropriate e-mails to a married woman, the same woman whose complaint of threatening e-mails from general petraeus' lover cracked the scandal wide open. barbara starr is trying to sort this out for us. it is rather complicated, what's the latest you're getting? >> it is still the same fundamental question for the last 24 hours, wolf. why is john allen being investigated and how on earth did he get caught up in this? marine corps general john allen denies an extramarital affair with jill kelly, the florida socialite whose concern over threatening e-mails led to an investigation that revealed an affair between cia director david petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. a pentagon official told reporters allen who commands the war in afghanistan is adamant he did nothing wrong. a senior official close to allen tells cnn of kelly there is no affair, she's a bored soci
we've pud the u.s./tie alliance on an even firmer footing for many years to come and tonight i look forward to celebrating the bonds of friendship between our peoples and alsz enjoying some thai food which is one of my favorites. thank you very much. >> thank you very much, mr. president. and now we will take a few questions from the floor. i would ask if i have not already mentioned so to ask you to identify your name and affiliation. we have about four questions. and so the first question is to the thai media. so could i have the first question, please? >> good evening. i represent the local newspaper here in thailand. this question goes to both of you, mr. president and prime minister. you both talk about democracy in thailand but my question is this. are you both satisfied with how democracies work -- the situation of democracy in thailand? i'm talking about the situation of those who are responsible for 2010 incident. you have many political prisoners and recorded human right abuse. i mean in your opinion, do you call the satisfying? and mr. president, which thai cuisine dish i
cutting ceremony. >>> more now on the downfall of the now former cia director david petraeus. u.s. government official is telling cnn the affair that caused petraeus' stepdown was first revealed through an fbi investigation. suzanne kelly has more now. suzanne? >> we now know from a u.s. official it was a complaint that paula broadwell, the woman who wrote the biography of general peatry was was sending harassing e-mails to another woman that prompted the fbi to investigate. also we know from that source that the investigation led to the discovery of e-mails between broadwell and petraeus that indicated the affair. that second woman hasn't been identified and the official we spoke with didn't know the nature of that woman's relationship with the former director. but more details are coming out about the time line of events and when u.s. officials were notified of the circumstances of this investigation. senior u.s. intelligence official tells cnn the fbi informed the director of national intelligence, james clapper, about the investigation on tuesday night, election night, just as
're tracking new developments about the surprise resignation of cia director david petraeus. a u.s. official tells cnn that petraeus's affair first came to light because the fbi looked into a complaint that his biographer was sending harassing e-mails to another woman who was close to petraeus. we'll have more information about the petraeus resignation also in just a few minutes. >>> with the election over, the pentagon has released the time line on the attack of the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. four americans were killed in the assault. the hour-by-hour timeline shows how top pentagon officials were informed on the attack hours after it started. the white house has been criticized to their response on the attack. >>> and guilty of liking vatican secrets to the media. a vatican court today gave the computer expert a two-month suspended sentence, meaning he wouldn't actually be going to prison unless he commits another offense. butler is serving 18 months behind bars. >>> and the united nations has declared today malala day, after the incident with a pakistani girl whose bravery has ins
of trips to afghanistan. she certainly had access to members at all levels of the u.s. military. and so, it's not clear where she got it from. presumably, it's part of the continuing fbi investigation. >> such a crucial question and what about this? you're a member of the cia external advisory. you have top security clearance on some things. she had top security clearance. what does that men in practice? >> paula broadwell was also a reservist in the u.s. army. when she was doing her mission as a reservist, she had access to classified material for that purpose. when you have a clearance, it doesn't mean have you access to all information. she has to have a need to know. certainly as a journalist, she did not have access and her clearance did not apply, so the question is how did she come into possession of this material and even though you may be exposed to classified information, it's a whole different thing to have retained it because you have to have the authority to retain classified information. you have to follow very strict proceed procedures for carrying it. the burden would be on
that remark. 73 minutes later took to the floor of the u.s. senate to respond. >> mr. president, four brave americans died. it has now been eight weeks and the american people have received nothing but contradictory statements from all levels of our government. this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetence, or engaged in a cover-up, neither of which are acceptable to the american people. >> keeping then honest, more than two months after the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, there are still some serious questions about the timeline of the events and specifically the administration's response in the days and weeks that followed. specifically, why didn't the president call it an act of terrorism? the president said, "it was quote too early to know exactly how this came about. or during an appearance on "the view" on the 25th. when asked, the president said "they were doing an investigation." or even more to the point, how the president described it five days after the attacks. >> putting together the best information that we have availab
. first off, dmon straights prompted the u.s. to shut down the embassy there. the embassy was not under fire but clashes between protesters and riot police clogged streets around the complex. this chaos is going on for days as demonstrators threatened the new islamic president morsi with a second revolution. >>> and then there's this. lawmakers dominated by islamists are now rushing to draft a new constitution. this move is seen by some of morsi's critics as an effort by the muslim brotherhood to hijack the constitution. and amid all of this, president morsi is on the cover of "time" magazine. "time" calls him the most important man in the middle east and boasts an exclusive interview credited with getting israel and gaza to end fighting. let's bring in the "time" bureau chief and got the interview and joins us from tel aviv. thank you for joining us and why is morsi the most important man in the middle east? >> well, for a couple of reasons. i mean, one he is just sort of central to, you know, the sort of what they call a new sunni axis of influence. sort of powerful country is counter
than cementing it back to the status quo ante, but in terms of hamas which has the u.s. and israel have tried to isolate it for all these years over the last week or so we've seen arab foreign ministers and leaders literally beating a path into gaza to go and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with hamas. this at the same time that egypt took that lead role and guaranteed and secured this cease-fire. so it's a very important significant moment. first time the new islamist government of egypt has been tested. hamas is now a force to be at least negotiated with rather than isolated. and we'll see whether this actually leads to something more than just a lull. >> what israeli officials say is that hamas made a commitment to the government in egypt, the president mohamed morsi, that they would stop firing into israel. if that were to be revoked, that would be a violation. they would be breaking their word to the egyptians and that would cause some serious repercussions i assume, christiane, between the egypt government, muslim brotherhood-led government, and hamas. >> reporter: well, i was obviousl
. and the president should have been told about it at the earliest date. >> reporter: a u.s. official said there was no breach of security as a result of the affair. a cantor aide says the congressman called the fbi's leadership to report the information he got on october 31st. but according to "the wall street journal," the fbi's probe had already been under way for months. "the journal" says the fbi's investigation began in may when it started looking into e-mails described as threatening sent to a woman cnn has identified as jill kelley, a family friend of petraeus'. the fbi traced the e-mails back to paula broadwell, petraeus' biographer. and by late summer, "the wall street journal" report, the bureau linked broadwell to petraeus. that's when "the journal" says top officials informed eric holder of the situation. >> once the white house, once some staffer knows, various people find out about something, it becomes public almost instantly. you see this all the time. >> reporter: cnn contributor tom fuentes says under its protocols the fbi and justice department should have kept it insid
about the merits of the case. the u.s. department of justice doesn't have the people. the u.s. department of justice declines all the time. which brings us back to one doctor and one nurse who stand to make millions if the allegations of fraud prove true. the u.s. government will recover the bulk of whatever they win. they and others like them are the deputies in the fight against health care fraud. >> are you surprise thad you have to defend the u.s. tax pair and not the u.s. government knocking on this door? >> it is not easy to come forward and stand up and tell the truth but it is the right thing to do. >> their case set for trial later this year. >> drew, is theresy chance that the company settle the case and put the allegations behind them? >> you know the attorney for the company couldn't rule that out. but insists this time the company is going to fight the allegations. that is the bread and butter for the $7 billion business. more than 2/3 of the company's revenue comes from treating patients on medicare and medicaid. the company will make sure that it has that contra
. >> this is "cnn breaking news." >> and we begin with breaking news out of the conflict zone, an attack at the u.s. embassy in tel aviv in israel. details just coming in, but an israeli police spokesman says a security guard at the embassy was attacked with an ax. the attacker reportedly also had a knife on him. we know the attacker has been arrested. when we get more information, we will bring that to you. of course, this is all happening as israel and hamas at the tipping point of all-out war. the israelis carrying out 80 air strikes overnight with hamas fighters launching 95 rockets into israel. 38 more palestinians killed, bringing the death toll since last week to 111. cnn has confirmed secretary of state hillary clinton is heading to israel in the air at this very moment. tomorrow she will meet with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. she'll also visit egypt and the west bank city of ramallah. and while the two sides are trading cease-fire proposals, israel's ambassador tells erin burnett his country is ready to launch a full-scale ground invasion. we talk to our reporter in phnom penh. she's
in swing states like here in ohio. last month, the u.s. supreme court allowed the state to keep the polls open for three days leading up to the election date. this morning, in african-american churches the push to vote went straight from the pulpit to the pews to the polls. this is how sunday sounds at the st. john ame church in columbus, ohio. >> i believe i can fly. say yes. say yes. >> an energetic mostly african-american congregation in the state that could decide the next president. like black churches across the sunday, this sunday, the flock is literally being driven to vote. it's called souls to the polls. and the pastor is making it a tradition. why is it so important to get people out? >> because we cannot afford to deny ourselves the right to vote. we ought to vote. we have done too much, come too far not to vote in this election. >> fired up? all right. >> after the sermon, they climb aboard the church bus. 63-year-old eugenia williams says she's bringing everything she could find at home with her name on it, to prove who she is. why are you taking your soul to the poll today?
do to itself if washington allows us to go over the fiscal cliff. unemployment in the u.s. which has come down to to 20.9%, it could go up another 9%. according to a new research new york post poll, you clearly understand the danger of this fiscal cliff. 50% say it will have a major effect on the economy, 21% say a minor effect, 2% no effect, 10% say they don't know, which is why you're watching this right now. president obama says they're centering around increasing tax on the wealthy which will go a good way in increasing the revenue that he wants to raise in the next decade in an attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to reinstate the bush tax cut which goes to the top 2% of earners. that would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second one would go from 36% to 39%. he's been focusing on this specific number since his reelection which suggests he may compromise on the actual rates in order to get a deal. there are other taxes as well he's talking about. taxes on investment gain would also go up. the capital gains tax wou
of like the old patriot anti-missile system as a lot of us were familiar with in u.s. wars over the past couple of decades. but this is designed for short-range rockets and missiles, if you will. and so far it's had about a 90% success rate. they've been using it pretty successfully. problem is, it's sort of 1,000 rockets and missiles that have come into israel from gaza since last wednesday when this crisis really escalated. every time they get word of a rocket or missile coming in the sirens go off in the towns and the villages, and the people have to rush to air raid shelters or to bunkers, stairwells, wherever they can go. and it's causing a lot of terror out there. the israelis say they're not going to tolerate it a whole lot longer. so that's the problem right now from the israelis' perspective. they're going in there with their air strikes, going after targets in gaza, but there are plenty of civilians who have been killed in the process in gaza, because it's such a heavily populated area. some of those rockets and missiles are launched from populated areas, and you get these trag
jihad is a group that israel and the u.s. consider a terrorist organization. regular life here in gaza city is pretty much ground to a halt. stores are closed and shuttered, streets which would normally be full of people largely empty. most people try to stay indoors, only venturing out when they absolutely need to in order to buy supplies for their families. otherwise it's just too dangerous to go out. these days for israelis along the border and residents of gaza city, there is no such thing as regular life. as the battle enters its seventh day, casualties rage and grief grow on both sides of the border along with the fear that the worst may be yet to come. and i'm joined by wolf blitzer in jerusalem, also here with ben wedeman and arwa damon. yesterday you were at the scene of probably what was then the most controversial attack, on a strike what israeli forces said was owned by a hamas official, a commander of an artillery unit. they said initially he had been killed and they stepped back from that. a number of members of a family, at least nine members of a family, were killed. wh

, the u.s. general in charge of allied troops in afghanistan, the top commander john allen is himself the subject of a pentagon investigation of allegedly inappropriate communications with jill kelley. yes, that jill kelley, we're talking about the same tampa housewife whom david petraeus' then mistress paula broadwell apparently saw as rival. a whole new chapter in a saga that since last friday has been one bombshell after another. and so far, all of them have something to do with kelley. she's a volunteer military liaison at the air force base, home of the u.s. central command in tampa, florida. kelley complained to the fbi last spring when paula broadwell was having an affair with petraeus allegedly harassed her with jealous e-mails. petraeus admitted the affair with broadwell but denies any elicit contact with kelley. so does general allen who was scheduled for a senate confirmation hearing this very week to become nato's supreme allied commander. today that's on hold, but he will continue in his position as the investigation continues. and all of that as the pentagon digs through

to studies, the average household could pay $3500 more in taxes. unemployment in the u.s. which has come down to 7.9% could head back up above 9% by this time next year. the u.s. could join europe which has been hit by a double dip recession. and according to a pugh research/"washington post" poll, you clearly understand the danger of this fiscal cliff. 68% say it will have a major effect on the economy. 21% say just a minor infect. only 2% say no effect. 10% say they don't know which is why you're watching this right now. president obama's solution to all this is to make a deal centered around increasing taxes on the wealthy which will go a good part of the way to raising the $1.6 trillion in new revenue that he wants to raise over the next decade in his attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to let the bush era tax cuts expire. if that happens, the top tax rate on income would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second top rate would go from 33% to 36%. now this is what president obama campaigned on. he's been vague about the spec

difficult to deal with? why is the u.s. a decade into the war unable to go on patrol with afghans? >> one of the reasons is geographical. if you look at this relief map here, the border between afgh afghanistan and pakistan is very artificial. i've crossed the border many times. every time illegally. and the mountains that descend from the high table land of central asia to the steamy in this river valley, it's a very gradual descent. it's the same indough-islamic civilization on both sides of the border. so the sides that the u.s. military and diplomatic core is going to make two separate well functioning states out of it is somewhat adverse to geology. >> what's really going on, we tlinch are good guys and bad guys but there are guys the pakistans supports, the guys that india has sup pored, the russia has intended -- >> india is a big player here, fareed. because if you look through indian history from the guptas to the mull rans, the moguls, the dynasty, others, what you see is for many periods of indian history or sub continent history, the same empire that controlled the northern th
the affair and a possible security breach in october after the investigation had begun. a u.s. official says the communications were never compromised and he was never the target of the investigation. another issue, petraeus stepped down days before he was supposed to testify before a senate committee about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. acting cia director michael morell will testify instead but some republicans weren't pleased. >> at the end of the day, the one thing that has to happen in my view is we need to get to the bottom of benghazi. i don't see how in the world find out what happened in benghazi before, during, and after the attack if petraeus doesn't testify. >> cnn has not been able to reach broadwell for comment. now, the woman who alergely received those e-mails has been identifies publicly and, of course, still questions remain over just what those e-mails contain, fredricka. >> what can more can you tell us about paula broadwell and how they met general petraeus. >> she is a married woman of two and she met him and started researching this disser tags that later t

of these people once again take cover in their homes? will the celebrations end and the fear return? for u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton and mohammed morsi who pushed for a cease fire, the agreement calls for discussion of a number of issues, including freedom of movement for palestinians in and out of gaza. and the agreement not to target the area in gaza, and to halt rocket fire into israel. again, a discussion, nothing is a done deal. over the next hour we'll look at the negotiations still happening now. we'll also hear from the spokeswoman for the israeli defense forces and from the leader of hamas. plus our reporters on the ground and a whole lot more. we begin with a look at what has transpired over just the last 24 hours. it is remarkable there was a cease-fire this hour, when you consider how this wednesday started off. take a look. add midday, no sign of a truce yet when a city bus is bombed in tel-aviv. at least two dozen were wounded. israeli police say terrorists left two bombs on the bus and fled. only one exploded. hamas praised the attack near the headquarters of the i
the numbers. the u.s. economy added 171,000 jobs in october as you both well know, surprisingly strong number. it may end up being the final political football, really the last thing you can give a speech on or cite a press release on. both candidates wasted no time spinning the numbers. listen. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that's 9 million jobs of what he promised. >> this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> so velvhi, do voters care or is it just noise? >> it's a jobs report you can spin is it either way. you wanted to say the unemployment rate is higher, it could, as the romney camp did. they didn't mention, all day they didn't mention the 171,000, and you didn't hear the unemployment rate being discussed by the obama campaign. what we found on the road from florida all the way through the swing states, through virginia and to here is that largely people are interested in two things with employment, their own trend and the
hours. really trying to put a u.s. stamp, footprint, if you will, on the negotiations. how much leverage does the u.s. have in actually making sure that the cease-fire is something that's going to hold? >> well the u.s. doesn't have much leverage over hamas because the u.s. doesn't deal with hamas. the u.s. government, previous governments, regards hamas as a terrorist organization. when secretary of state hillary clinton visits here in jerusalem later, then goes to ramallah to meet with mahmoud abbas tomorrow and then goes to cairo she's not going to meet with anyone from hamas. the u.s. does have leverage on egypt, given the economic and military assistance the u.s. provides to egypt and given the dire economic straits that the egyptians are in right now. so the u.s. has leverage on the egyptians and obviously the u.s. has very good relations with israel. so the u.s. is a key player in all of this. but as far as leverage on hamas, u.s. leverage is limited. >> secretary of state hillary clinton's arriving soon in jerusalem about three hours or so from now. she'll go to ramallah, then on
, the commander of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan is now under investigation for alleged inappropriate communications with jill kelley. now investigators are said to be looking into the 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails and other documents that he sent to her. kelley, of course, is the florida woman whose original complaint to the fbi about threatening e-mails inadvertently exposed the affair between general petraeus and paula broadwell. meantime a team of fbi agents searched broadwell's home in charlotte, north carolina, overnight, and spent nearly five hours there wrapping up just after 1:00 in the morning. "wall street journal" is reporting that the fbi agent who launched the petraeus investigation himself is under investigation. in part because he sent shirtless pictures of himself to jill kelley. jill kelley, the woman who kicked off all of this investigation, by complaining about the e-mails that she was getting from the petraeus mistress. so the agent, who knew kelley, allegedly sent those pictures before any investigation began, but as you can see, the story is getting much mor
that elected him and the muslim brotherhood, as well as the u.s. and the international community and all that is bound into that. >> yeah. michael, in many ways as we speak today egyptian president mohammed morsi is viewed as maybe the most important voice for the palestinians on the world stage, and to understand the type of pressure he is under it's so important to understand how arabs, how egyptians view this conflict between the palestinians and the israelis because it is very different from the western view. egyptians, arabs, look at the latest round of fighting, and they see more than 130 palestinians killed compared to five israelis killed. they should taking on fighters that are smuggling weapons in, and they see israel as an illegal occupying force for more than 40 years. they see this as an unjust, as a lopsided conflict, and they want president morsi to do something about it. at the same time mr. morsi has made it clear that he doesn't want to disrupt his alliances with washington and western powers. he relies on these governments for political credibility, for economic recove

turnaround year for the u.s. the start of a recovery that feels real. most of it will have very little to do with washington policy, though your state and federal government will have to step in to make it happen. let me explain. first, there is an energy boom under way in the united states right now. fueled by the joint forces of hydraulic fracturing or fracking of natural gas out of shale and buy mo by more drilling for oil. natural gas is increasingly cheap and abundant and not only used for gas in homes and businesses but for the manufacturing generation. it's not just about cars and homes, more domestically pro du duced energy will provide fuel in manufacturing goods. combine them with rising costs in china and other countries and already high shipping costs, and you make made in america products more attractive to people abroad, and that's good. home sales rising for the first time in years. construction is start to go pick up. and historically low interest rates now averaging below 30% for a 30-year fixed mortgage will only fuel a rebound next year. and remember, a house will still be
ayotte. she went to address concerns they have over statements the ambassador made over the u.s. mission in benghazi on september 11th that left ambassador chris stevens and three other americans dead. i want you to listen to what senator graham, republican south carolina, here, said immediately after the meeting ended. >> bottom line, i'm more disturbed now than i was before that the 16 september explanation about how four americans died in benghazi, libya, by ambassador rice, i think does not do justice to the reality at the time, and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. but here's the key. in real time, it was a statement disconnected from reality. >> and now here is senator ayotte. >> i want to say that i'm more troubled today, knowing -- having met with the acting director of the cia and ambassador rice, because it's certainly clear from the beginning that we knew that those with ties to al qaeda were involved in the attack on the embassy. and clearly the impression that was given, the information given to the american people, was wrong. in fact, ambassador rice said today, ab
. >> and the u.s. and other nations certainly have been urging both sides to show restraint. are you getting the sense at all that it's escalating action instead? >> reporter: i would say from the view that we have down here that it's escalating though at a slower pace than it did at the beginning. as you'll remember this, conflict began when the israelis struck a senior hamas military wing leader, and since then you've had these air strikes. they have escalated, especially during the course of friday. right now it's sort of reached a level where it's pretty high intensity pretty much throughout the entire day. i wouldn't say escalating a lot but still escalating. one of the other things, of course, a telltale sign of an escalation is more and more israeli troops coming in here as well. one of the things that we can say is that there certainly isn't any deescalation and certainly neither of the two sides seem to be willing to take their foot off the gas at this point in time, randi. >> frederik pleitgen in southern israel for us, fred, thank you. >>> we want to show you some live pictures ri
